Virtual Shamrocks for MDA

March 9, 2021

Celebrate March and support the Muscular Dystrophy Association by virtually participating in the iconic MDA Shamrocks Program.

In the past, more than 80 chapters have raised more than $30,000 selling Shamrocks to students, teachers and local businesses – and this year, MDA has added a new digital option to enhance your chapter’s fundraising!

Your chapter can create its own page or direct your community on social media to donate to our DECA Inc. page!  

Important: the deadline for all donations to MDA for recognition during Virtual ICDC is March 25, 2021.
